Elofex Thread Blog Tour

main

If you’re anything like me you’re always on the hunt for products that make will make your sewing experience better.  When Coats approached me about trying out their newest product, Eloflex Thread, I was totally intrigued.  I jumped at the opportunity and I can’t wait to share this revolutionary thread with you guys!  Read to the end for two chances to win your own stash of this amazing product.

Eloflex Thread is designed to be used when sewing stretch fabrics.  It has just the right amount of stretch making it super easy to sew those pesky knits and stretch wovens with ease.  I honestly struggled a bit with how I would actually use this thread.  I am constantly sewing knits for my kids and myself but do 90% of it on my serger.  This new thread is meant to be used in your regular sewing machine which is a huge plus for those that don’t have a serger/overlock machine.  Now, for those of us that are attached at the hip with our sergers how does this new thread help?

Well, I’ve had my thread for almost a month now and I’m constantly reaching for it!  I’m so glad I had the time to really work it into my sewing routine so I can give you an honest, real life review.  I’ve used it on dozens of garments and had the chance to see how it wears and stretches in many different applications.  As I sewed my kids back to school requests it came in handy for topstitching knit pockets onto tees and finishing knit neckbands.  The fact that it stretches means you can use your standard lengthened straight stitch for beautiful topstitching that retains the garments stretch!  Game changer right there!  I’ve almost always skipped the topstitching around necklines because I wasn’t a huge fan of the zig-zag finish my regular machine does.  With this thread in both the bobbin and top, my stitch length lengthened just a touch, my neckbands have never looked better.  This cute pair of undies was done by serging the elastic on then topstitching it down with Eloflex and a zig-zag stitch.  So easy and I know it’ll last wash after wash.

I don’t have a Coverstitch machine and this thread is making it less and less a priority for me.  I played around with my double needle and this thread and think I have the perfect combination to keep me happy for a long time.  I have a Brother sewing machine and I use Eloflex in my bobbin with a stretch double needle and regular thread up top.  I did try using all Eloflex and with my machine it was actually too much stretch, resulting in a bit more tunneling than normal.  Even on this drapey poly rayon, my hems look great!

eloflex4

When thinking about what project I wanted to make to really highlight this thread I knew this gorgeous quilted knit would be perfect.  Because of the quilting I wanted to use single stitch topstitching throughout the garment and this thread was just what I needed.  With this thread in the top and bobbin I was able to use my regular straight stitch to hem the sleeves and bottom, sew the pleats, and topstitch the pockets and neckband for such a nice finish.

It has honestly changed my sewing habits.  I will continue to use this thread for all my finishing needs on my stretch garments.  I’m so wishing I had had this for all the swimsuits I sewed this summer and can’t wait to use it for next years.  I know I will keep coming up with different uses for it too- workout gear, undergarments, socks/tights, Halloween costumes… I think the list will grow and grow!

For this last stop I’m sharing a few more girls swimsuits and some tips for modifying your favorite non-swim patterns to work for swimwear.

Summer is a time of family and we love that we get to spend time with these cute cousins from Arizona.  My sister loves to sew as much as I do (with three kids under 5 she just doesn’t get to do it as often as she’d like!).  I love when she’s in town and we can spend our days sewing together.  This tour was a fun chance to make coordinating suits for all the girl cousins!

edie3

This little munchkin is looking darling in her teeny weeny polka dot bikini.  My sister used the free Classic Maillot Swimskirt from our sponsor Call Ajaire.  It includes the attached swim bottoms!  For the top she used the Made By Rae Flashback Skinny Tee and brought in the sides a bit and added a band to the cropped bottom.

edie2

soph6

My oldest has such similar tastes to my own.  I giggled when I asked her what kind of suit she wanted for this last one and she described exactly what I want my next suit to be!  She’s looking hip in highwaisted Cosi Swimsuit bottoms from SewPony paired with a modified Boo! Designs Sleeved Leotard.

soph7

For her top, I simply cropped the bottom of the leotard off and used the mini skirt piece that comes with the pattern.  I modified it a bit to be a full circle skirt, just placing both edges on the fold of the fabric.  You could easily do this same thing to any top pattern and calculate your own circle skirt for the peplum.  We went through a handful of our favorite tee patterns as options before I settled on the leotard pattern since I was sewing while she was at school and couldn’t accurately gauge how much to take the sides in on a standard looser fitting tee without her trying it on.

Other modifications you can make to standard patterns include using your favorite underwear patterns for bottoms.  You can simply line them in swim lining or swim fabric!  Keep that undies pattern handy and add it to your well-loved shorts pattern, catching the top of both in the elastic casing or band, for a cute pair of swim shorts.

Close fitting tops make excellent swimwear.  I love to slim down raglans as rash guards but you could also use a well fitting tank pattern as a swim top too!   I like to line the front bodice piece for girls and add a simple elastic shelf bra for myself.  You can use elastic for the neckline and arms too.  Since it is a tight fitting garment make your elastic just barely shorter than the opening.  I serge the elastic to the wrong side and turn it under once then topstitch with a double needle or zigzag stitch.

payt6

For this cute suit, I used the Leotard Etoile with the included Demi Skirt used as a shoulder ruffle.  I serged the neck elastic to the lining, main suit and ruffle.  I then flipped the elastic under and topstitched it down underneath the ruffle keeping the clean line at the neck.

payt4

It was a breezy day and I loved catching the ruffle blowing in the wind!

morgan2

This last cutie is wearing a modified Cosi Swimsuit too!  I just love that little belly but as we discovered last year high waisted suits just don’t want to stay put.

morgan1

My sister sewed this one up too and I love this fabric she chose!

I sure wish these cute cousins could see each other all the time!  They sure do love each other and we can’t wait to spend as much time as possible together this summer!

Well, folks, I quite possibly will never sew another swimsuit again.  Just kidding!  I’m ready to move on to something new but I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before I’m itching to ‘dive in’ to swimsuits again.  They really are so rewarding and such quick sews (minus those epic boardshorts!).

I really hope that you’re ready to Suit Up yourself and I can’t wait to see what you guys make this summer.  It’s really been such a pleasure hosting this tour and hearing from all of you.  Now get off the computer and get sewing!

 

 

Suit Up For Summer Day Four

group3

We’ve made it to day 4- woot woot!  Have you learned anything so far?  Picked up a pattern or two?

Today I’m talking about the best part of swimsuit sewing- FABRIC!!  If you’re anything like me, you can never have enough fabric.

We have multiple fabric sponsors on the tour and I’m excited to get you guys shopping.  The Fabric Fairy has a HUGE selection of both spandex and board short fabric as well as everything you need to complete your suit- elastic, bra cups, linings, etc.

Peek-a-Boo Fabric Shop offers great custom printed fabrics and coordinates.  You can pick up your PAB pattern and sew it up in PAB fabric- oh cool is that?!

Simply By Ti has some great choices for swim cover-ups- think cozy french terry and bright crochet fabrics.

Boo! Designs is based in Australia and has an unbelievable selection!  Like I want to order a dozen prints right now!

Sash Fabrics is another custom fabric shop full of unique and fun designs!

group1

My family is all decked out in another of our sponsors latest designs- Raspberry Creek Fabrics!  I love that these fabrics coordinate so well together without us being too matchy-matchy.  When looking through the new line it was so easy to pair up each print to my kids personalities!

tanner6

The Sunset Palms were meant to be this kid’s.  He lives in subtle Hawaiian prints and this was just too perfect for him!  You can read more details about his suit in yesterday’s post.

soph2

I’ve been dying to share this suit!! This sweet, sophisticated girl is rocking the Tropical Leaves swim print in a Lil Luxe Leotard Etoile.  I think this is the perfect pattern/fabric pairing!

soph4

The simple silhouette really lets this print shine!

soph1

I need one of these suits for myself ASAP!

charlie3

My little man NEEDED these sharks the minute he saw them.  I love the colors in this print and how easily they coordinate to so many others!  You can find his suit in yesterday’s post too!

payton1

This sassy girl loves the bright colors of the Sea Floor print.  Paired with the Nautical Stripe it’s too cute for words!

payton4

She’s wearing a Marilyn Vintage Suit from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop.  This suit offers plenty of coverage and so many cute options.  This simple view was fun to showcase these prints.

payton3

She certainly loves it!

mom8

I got another suit too!  This time I used the Nautical Stripe for myself.  I used the Edgy Top from George and Ginger.  It’s not designed as a swim top but with a few modifications it worked great!

mom9

I lined the front and added cups and an elastic shelf bra.  I cut my pattern a size smaller and finished the neckline and arm with elastic cut barely smaller than the openings.  I like to serge my elastic on in the round to the wrong side of my fabric then flip it under and topstitch with a twin needle.  Super easy!

mom10

I used the bottoms from the First Crush Suit from Rad Patterns.  The suit offers so many options and great coverage!

I love these stripes and the chance they gave me to play with the directions.  This swim knit is some of the nicest I’ve ever sewn with.  It’s nice and thick and has great 4-way stretch making it super easy for me to use it on the diagonal.  The matte finish gives it a very high-end feel.

mom6

I also used coordinating Navy Board Short Fabric to make me a pair of Swim and Surf Shorts from Gracious Threads.  I love the fit of these and after making my little guys these were such a quick sew.  I love the extra coverage for chasing kiddos around!

Phew!  So…many…swimsuits!  Are you sick of me yet?!! Just one more day…

I’ve got to give a huge thank you to our good friends for letting us borrow their gorgeous backyard for these pics!  It was absolutely perfect!

I’m talking ladies swimsuits today and I’m going to be completely honest with you all- I really have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to women’s swimsuits.  My past adventures in sewing swimwear for myself have been fairly easy.  I’ve only ever made rash guard tops by adding a lining, cups and an elastic shelf bra to the Lane Raglan.  A raglan is about as beginner friendly as it gets- add a couple more steps and voila! Instant swim top!

swim

Nothing mind blowing but I usually live in these on our beach vacations and long days at the pool.  For this years suits I wanted to change it up but kept going back to the same look and coverage these suits offered.  I decided to use  a couple of Patterns for Pirates  to achieve this look.  Judy at P4P has generously offered a discount code for our readers during the tour.  Use code ‘swimtour’ to receive $2 off any swim pattern in the shop!

mom1

I used the Hello Sailor Swim Bottoms for nice bum coverage!  I hate worrying that I’m flashing innocent people!  I followed the tip to add power mesh to just the front belly area and love the ‘spanx’ effect.    I did a straight size medium and can’t wait to make more of these.  The pattern comes with a handful of fun options so I’ll be changing it up a bit too.

mom4

I used the Layer Me Up top pattern for this hack.  I’ll tell you what I did and what I’d do differently next go round.  With swim I don’t feel like you can really muslin a pattern so I just go for it and hope it works out!  I cut a front lining piece and cropped the tee to my natural waistline in a straight medium also (my normal size).  I added cups to the lining (I ended up doubling them up for a little more umph!) and did an extra wide band at the bottom, hoping to avoid the elastic of the shelf bra.  Well, it wasn’t love so back to the drawing board.

Off went the band and I ruched the sides of the bottom piece with a small piece of elastic for a little detail and added my standard 3/4″ elastic under the bra cups.  I really wanted the top to meet the bottoms and think this is the best I could get.  I think I’d use the LMU in the future but I will just do it the full length I need and add the cups and elastic shelf bra like I did in my raglan rash guards.

One tip I did learn with the elastic under the cups is to have it not quite meet the side seams.  I usually try to catch it in the seams for extra strength but since this was added after the seams were done I just secured the elastic to the lining only.  The benefit is that it doesn’t pull at the side seam- I’ll share a top later this week that has this issue.

pair2

I really like the coverage of this suit and know I’ll be comfortable wrangling my kiddos at the pool in it.  I picked up the fabric for my top and also my bra cups (4/$1!) in the LA Fabric District.  I love that place!

pair1

I’m really tempted to try my hand at sewing an actual swim top!  Our sponsors have some great choices! The Siren Swim Top from Patterns for Pirates is so cute! Closet Case Patterns offers two super chic swim options- the Sophie Swimsuit and the Bombshell (I actually have one that’s been cut and waiting to be sewn for far too long!).  5 out of 4 Patterns has a bunch of fun, sporty options and Rad Patterns has two swimsuits with the most options I’ve ever seen!  Jalie has a ton of patterns to choose from and you can get one for you and your mini me all in one sweet deal.  Laela Jeyne  has two versatile, cute patterns- a fun skirted one piece and a vintage inspired bikini set.  Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop has swimwear for the whole family!

I came across a few more designers that offer women’s swimwear that I’d love to try too!  Wardrobe By Me, Dandelions and Dungarees, Lily Sage and Co, and Seamstress Erin all offer unique swimsuit pdf’s.

Coffee and Thread Tour

Head on over and do a little shopping and save 20% with the code ‘coffeeandthreadtour’.  Stay tuned to the end of my post for a huge giveaway too!

pair5

For my stop on the tour, I had the hardest time picking what I wanted to sew.  I’ve had the Eleena Dress pattern for-ev-ah and that was my original plan.  That classic silhouette is one of my favorites.  As I was preparing though the new Polina Dress hit the shop and it just begged to be made.  Those ruffles and a twirly circle skirt are everything!  And in true SewSophieLynn fashion, I just had to make two dresses, no way could I leave a sister out of this gloriousness.  The Ania Tunic is another classic pattern that lent itself to a little hacking for little sis.

pair3

I’ve been spending a lot of time at Raspberry Creek Fabric (Diana is a gracious sponsor of the tour) and I just had to have these two fabrics for my looks.  Diana has a ton of fun gingham in the shop and I’d actually been stalking the return of this floral from Cotton and Steel.  Together they make an unexpected pairing for Easter.

ania4

This floral from Cotton and Steel was perfect for the bohemian vibe I was going for.  It’s soft and sweet and looks so cute on this girly.

ania1

For her look, I modified the Ania Tunic a few ways.  First and most obvious is that I made it dress length by adding about 10 inches to the tunic length for a size 7- she’s almost a 9 for height so that’s a couple inches more than average.  I switched out the button in the back for a tie since my girls are forever getting their hair caught in back buttons.  With the help of Olga I took a little height off the sleeve cap to make the sleeve less puffy at top- I was thinking puffy sleeves AND a sleeve ruffle would be too much.  Finally, I added a ruffle at the sleeve hem for the ultimate boho look.

ania3

She’s my accessories gal and as soon as she’d picked out her baubles I knew this dress was made for her!  She’s all about the glam but is still just 7 so comfort usually trumps all.  This dress suits her to a T!

polina4

This Polina is LOVE!  This one is a lot less girly so the gingham is a perfect pick.  Those ruffles down the bodice add just the right amount of playfulness.  For this one I did it just as the pattern says, only switching out the buttons for KAM snaps in the back (to avoid the hair tangles).  She’s a size 7 also with a 10 height which was an easy alteration with the circle skirt.

polina2

Her ruffles are lined with little sister’s floral so the are matching but not totally twinning.  I don’t think I could get away with making them full-on identical outfits but they sure do love to coordinate.

polina3

The best part about this dress- THE TWIRL!

pair1

I’m so excited to have their Easter dresses done- they have some cute knit ones too that I’ll be sharing later this week that they’ll wear for all the easter egg huntin’ fun.    For this shoot we headed to our favorite little shopping place, Gardner Village.  It was also the location of our Easter shoot last year too- you can’t beat the gorgeous flowers and fun buildings as backdrops!

pair4

In typical Utah spring fashion, we took these pictures and as we walked to the car the heavens opened!  The rain turned to snow and we woke up to a winter wonderland the next day!  So as the snow melts outside I’ll cling to these pics and the hope of more beautiful spring days ahead.

Watcha Wearin January Kids Style

waterfall2

As I was contemplating my second post for the Watcha Wearing January tour I knew I wanted to do it for kids clothes.  My closet is probably only about half handmade but my girls are close to 90% (I’ve yet to make jeans for them since I can pick them up for ten bucks and pj’s are about half rtw since they are just too darn cute!).  You guys see plenty of cute styled pics like the one above but I wanted to give you guys a glimpse into our reality.

I’d like to share what actually gets worn in our day to day.  I never really know what will be a favorite and what will sit on the hanger.  I always try to involve my kids when I sew and let them pick out fabrics and patterns and sometimes we hit the jackpot.  For pattern tests I usually ask which girl likes the pattern the most.  They have such different personalities that I’m getting pretty good at sewing for their own styles.  My boys are all about the comfort and I know I can’t go wrong with comfy pants, raglans, and hoodies.

A glimpse into our laundry baskets this week will find:

butterfly14

This velvet Andromeda Top has been worn at least once a week since I made it.  She has a matching one for her doll that is too cute too!

cocoon6

The Butterfly Cardigan is a new addition and both girls wear it whenever possible.  It’s just such a cozy layering piece!

payton2

The Miss Mary Mack (affl. link) from Love Notions is another top that this one wears constantly.  I really need to make her a few more.  I just love the yoke detail and all the fun options it has.

b2s13

This outfit of a Jolly Roger Raglan and Boxwood Joggers is his absolute favorite.  It’s comfy, warm and in his favorite colors so of course it’s worn as soon as it’s clean.

For a real dose of reality I grabbed pics of my kids if they happened to be in mama made this week.  They were usually taken after school or right after they woke up so they are lookin’ good!

Our Sunday looks:

You can find pretty pics and details on these here, here, and here.

After church casual:

Boxwood Joggers and a poncho I knit way before I even had a daughter (this is one of those things that kills me that she loves!).

School looks:

We have a super old Skipper Top, Baby bear joggers, Jolly Roger Raglan with cowl, Blair Top, and Hatteras Hoodie with Mini Hudson Pants.

It was fun to reflect on sewing for my kids and what makes something actually get worn.  What are your go-to patterns for your kids?  Anything that surprised you that they’ve fallen in love with?
